    To me, he is human. The half brain is a prosthetic.

    It's funny, I would never have gone there, but calling them "dollies" is also such a British kind of thing to do, it makes perfect sense to me that the show is from the UK.

    He is really phoning it in here. I wish they would get rid of his character.

    We just started binge watching all the episodes and we have been really pleased with it. We are all caught up and it is good stuff!

    Not understanding the Hurt hate...that's pretty much how he always acts.

    He's pretty much an older version of his character from A.I

    That's his method. Flat, very paced delivery. I prefer a little more emotion & energy.

    They made it much clearer in last week's episode (sorry, I usually watch them on the saturday run after the orig Sunday run).. that the had died, had a bunch of his body replaced, and had lost a lot of memories.

    People who you know in real life don't necessary have the personalities, temperaments and supposed energy levels that you might like them to have. They just are as they are for the most part. Why should a particular actor act the way you- one person among millions watching the show- want him to act?

    Keep in mind for those of us watching on AMC there's still one episode left.

    Was just an observation of preference. William Hurt can emote however he chooses. :)

    Fwiw...I agree with Mark. I just happen to like that about hurt.

    My comment was more directed to the posts implying he was slumming it or phoning the performance in...I was just saying, that's how he always is.

    I agree - I don't think he was phoning in his performance.
    Since I know him mostly from his movie work it was however surprising to see him in this.

    I found this borderline spoilerish. I'm not big on playing spoiler police, but when I saw this post--a day BEFORE the episode where he dies--it was clear something was going to happen to him, probably resulting in his death. So yeah, the scene with him was anti-climactic as I kept waiting for him to die.

    Please be more considerate next time. There was nothing cryptic about your statement.

    That seems to be a theme of this show. Millican kept Odi because he has memories of his wife he lost due to his stroke.

    Oh, get over it. It was just a standard joke, hence the "grin". I had no advanced knowledge that he would die, having not seen the episode yet, either. That type of response is the most common comment ever made after someone says some version of, "I wish......".

    Now, if I had knowingly said that the character was going to die because of advanced knowledge of an episode's content, then you would have a legitimate complaint. But that ain't what happened.

    No need to be snippy about it. Astrohip had no idea that you had no idea. Let's keep it polite...

    Anybody else see the season finale? I thought it was well done. We had a lot of questions answered but still room for a season two. The only thing and I am given them a lot of room here is why they let the robot that captured them in the room. I mean there was nothing good to come of it. They didn't know if she could/would turn. Just seemed strange to me. Then of course that is what happened.
